Truffled Tuna Risotto Recipe



  • 2 cups uncooked Carniola or Arborio Rice 
  • 1½ cup of leeks, thinly sliced (whites and light green only) 
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, tough end cut off and chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen peas (if frozen, thaw ahead of time)
  • 7 – 8 cups of vegetable, seafood or chicken stock, kept warm on stove top
  • ½ cup dry white wine (or sub extra cup of stock)
  • 1 lemon zested  
  • 2 jars of Tonnino Tuffle Albacore, drained
  • ¼ cup of fresh green herbs chopped (basil, chives, parsley, tarragon or dill) 
  • 2 – 3 TB of olive oil 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Parmesan or pecorino optional to finish


For Risotto 

  • Using a large skillet or medium sized dutch oven heat 2TB of olive oil over medium high heat and add asparagus, salt and pepper. Sauté for 3 – 4 minutes until cooked and peas, cook 2 minutes further, remove from pan and set aside 
  • Add 1 TB of olive and sauté leeks until softened about 3- 4 minutes 
  • Stir in rice and make sure everything is mixed in well and the rice is coated with the leeks and olive oil. Sauté for 2 – 3 minutes until rice is turned slightly white
  • Add in white wine and stir until completely reduced 
  • Ladle in warm broth one ladle at a time (about ½ cup or so), reduce heat slightly so mixture is a low simmer and continue to stir mixture slowly until broth has been absorbed by the rice
  • Continue adding broth at this pace until rice is perfectly al dente to your liking. The risotto should be creamy and soft 
  • Add in ¾ of the asparagus and pea mixture, season with salt and pepper and stir 
  • Remove from heat and plate for your guests, flaking generous amount of the tuna and finish with remaining asparagus and pea mixture as well as sprinkle of lemon zest
